NEW CONTEST - Triple Play Frenzy

Current Contest


We have listened and we are back with an intriguing proposition to all of the cartographers of Valhalla. Show us your best 3-way play. That's right. We are running a contest for 3 player maps. We’re calling on all map builders to come up with worthy maps to submit for review, scoring, and potential entry into the Triple-Play Frenzy contest.

The top 10 Triple-play maps will be chosen by the ARV judges and then a public vote will take place. The map with the greatest number of votes will receive fame, glory, and an awesome prize … A custom dice bowl designed by TREX!

Why are we doing this?
We want to create a repository for great 3-player maps. A quick place to go where heroscapers throughout the realm can find a quality map to conduct a fair truel.

Submissions accepted starting...
March 3, 2019

Submissions will be due...
March 31, 2019

Guidelines

General guidelines for all contests are specifically outlined in OP of the Welcome thread, with the following exceptions for this contest:

1. Submissions
Open for 4 weeks, allowing for 2 submissions from each cartographer. Submissions do NOT need to be new creations. Find your best 3-player map that fits the terrain requirements, fine tune it, play test it, tweak it, and then submit it.
2. Terrain
Master Sets. One of the following may be used as a master set:
Rise of the Valkyrie
Swarm of the Marro
D&D: Battle for the Underdark
Marvel: The Conflict Begins

Expansions: Up to 4 of the following may be used, but no more than 2 of any one expansion:
Road To The Forgotten Forest
Volcarren Wasteland
Thaelenk Tundra
Fortress of the Archkyrie
Ticalla Jungle

Hybrid Master Sets: One of the following may be used in place of 1 expansion:
Swarm of the Marro (Except when also used as a master set.)
D&D: Battle for the Underdark
Marvel: The Conflict Begins
3. Start Zones
Start zones can range from 18 to 24 hexes.
Scoring

ALL maps submitted will be reviewed and scored according to the following Rubric:

Aesthetics/Creativity (originality of build/looks good/playability): 10 pts
Balanced (doesn't favor one build over another and allows each army equal access to victory): 20 pts
Use of Terrain: 10 pts
Name and theme: 10 pts

Total: 50 pts

*Judges scoring the maps:
@Flash_19
@Sir Heroscape
@Nomad
@BiggaBullfrog
@TREX (emeritus)

*Each map will have a rubric filled out, one from each judge. All the scores will then be averaged for one final score for that map.

*At the end of the deadline, the top 10 maps will be chosen and posted. A PUBLIC POLL will then be opened for the community to vote on the best map out of the top 10. The map winner will be posted after the poll and the prize will be awarded.

*Maps can have a backstory included with your submission. Helping us to envision being there, and the story behind it, can tip things in favor when we complete our initial scoring. It can be as simple as a couple sentences or much longer.

Inclusion into ARV:

*Because 3-player maps are not typically used in tournaments, maps won't be given the distinction of "tournament worthy". Also, the evaluation process for determining the balance of maps that are submitted will be slightly different due to the uniqueness of 3-player maps. However, we are hoping to create a repository of quality 3-player maps that will still carry our recommendation for being balanced and well-designed. Quality 3-player maps that will be added to the ARV repository will require a MAJORITY approval vote from the active ARV judges.

*Many 3-player maps have varying start zones and have special scenarios attached. All start-zones must be 18-24 hexes for this contest. If you want to add a scenario in the description, that is fine. But, scenarios will not be considered in determining the quality of the 3-player map.

*Maps will be added to the 3-player ARV repository by a simple majority vote of the judges. Again, we are not evaluating maps on being tournament worthy. Rather, we are asking the question: Is this a good, fair, and worthwhile 3-player map?
